The greatest thing about dogs is their ability to live in the moment. Win, lose, or draw they give no mind as long as they are having fun. And fun we did have! Our sixth and likely, Hudson’s last, year jumping with Purina was once again an absolutely amazing experience.
He barked his brains out, spit blood everywhere and jumped with all his heart. We even got to run free on the beach at 1 am, chasing waves and laughing until I couldn’t breathe. What a journey this has been!
Hudson, my fuzzy psycho bunny, you are an amazing creature. I can only hope that your son brings the same power, enthusiasm, and determination to my next journey. Time to enjoy your semi retirement!
I think we ended up with 4th in diving dog (despite my hand slipping on the 3rd bumper). Congratulations to all the winners, some really awesomely athletic dogs at the event. Super thank you to the Carson crew and Jim Allen from Purina, you guys are the best!
